Blastocyst-Like Structures from Mouse Stem Cells – Researchers have generated 3D blastocyst-like structures from mouse PSCs that could be implanted into the uterus and grow before resorption.
Making Old Brain Stem Cells Young – Investigators have found that increasing brain stiffness during aging leads to the dysfunction of oligodendrocyte progenitor cells, but showed that the effects can be reversed.
Stem Cell Combination Repairs Damaged Hearts – Heart muscle cells and epicardial cells derived from human ESCs were co-transplanted into rats with damaged hearts, generating grafts that had greater cell growth and that lived longer.
Using CAR-T against HIV – Scientists have developed duoCAR-T cells that target multiple sites on the HIV envelope, and that were able to kill HIV cells while resisting infection themselves.
